Buried In Verona Announce Final Ever National Tour

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 30, 2016

Staples of the local heavy scene, Buried In Verona have announced they will soon be calling it a day, but not before one final hoorah. The band will be loading up the van for the final time ever and hitting the highways of Australia for a nation-wide farewell tour this October and November.

For years the band were at the forefront of the Australian wave, dropping headline tours (nationally and abroad) and high-profile support slots like it ain’t no thang. Then, just as quickly as it all happened, it unhappened. The band soon found themselves victims of various snakes within the music industry trusted to protect them, a story as old as the industry itself.

Speaking with Music Feeds, Buried In Verona founding member and frontman Brett Anderson says, “I wasn’t sure if I should go silently but I think that would be a bit of a spit in the face for the people who did supported Buried in Verona.

“It’d be nice to see those faces around the country one last time and give them a thank you and goodbye to everyone who helped Buried In Verona get to where it did.”

Given the option to fade into the night, Buried In Verona said ‘fuck that’ and have announced The Last Leg Up Tour, giving themselves the chance to thank the fans who made everything possible for them. Joining them on the run will be fellow countrymen Capture The Crown, Foxblood and Arkive.

Buried In Verona’s latest album, last year’s aptly named Vultures Above, Lions Below, will effectively be the band’s opus. A strong and confident release, the album was unfortunately lost in the bigger conversation about the band at the time, but with shows now locked in across the country, it’s sure to get a good flogging.

Catch the group’s upcoming farewell tour dates below, along with a statement from Brett Anderson. Music Feeds‘ full interview with Anderson about Buried In Verona’s breakup and final tour will be published later today.

Official statement from Buried In Verona’s Brett Anderson:

“Most people in the heavy music scene, as much as they dread the thought, know that one day this moment will come. The moment most bands have to go through. The moment is the end. The last tour, last album and it feels just as bad as I always knew it would.
After nearly a decade of living, for the most part, something I always dreamed of doing, it’s now time for the end and one last tour.

I want to thank everyone who supported Buried In Verona over the years, whether it was for one album or all five, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening to our music. It’s the best thing I’ve ever achieved.

To the people who wrote to us saying our music touched you, saved you or helped you in anyway, know that your messages and kind words did more to us that our music did to you, truly honoured that some of you thought about BIV in that amazing way. You guys allowed us to see and do some incredible things around the world and we can never repay you so thank you, thank you, thank you.

This is not the end of music for me as I’ll be continuing with my side project, Don’t Die Like I Did, but I do have to close the chapter of my life that is Buried In Verona.

See you all one last time,
Love all the BIV family.”
